Tambo - Heritage Precinct Tambo - Heritage Precinct

The Heritage Precinct is located on the eastern entrance of Tambo.

 

Discover stories of the oldest town in the west at Tambo's Hertiage Precinct. The Buildings were orginally Tambo's Post and Telegraph Offices, and Tambo played a vital role

in teh early telegraph system linking the north of Australia with the south. These hertiage listed buildings were moved by a bullock team with the aid of logs to make way

for the new Post Office in 1904 and today house a mix of displays portraying the history and lifestyle of Tambo. Sit down, relax and listen to locals telling stories of the

town's goats, telephone exchange, Qanta's only plane crash and old picture theatre on the interactive DVD display.

The smaller building houses the Post and Telegraph artefacts including an interactive Morse code display, which you can see and hear in operation as it taps a message

out ready to send. While there you can try your hand at signaling. The Totally Tambo Heritage Group mans the buildings on a volunteer basis and are happy to have a chat

and share their knowledge of Tambo's history. A small range of locally made arts and crafts available for purchase at the Centre.
